Last I checked, Jews enjoy question-asking (Passover) and questioning (see: life), which makes Jeopardy! feel like a part of the family—that kosher portion of the media diet. Contestants of the game are given an answer by host Alex Trebek (née mustache), to which they respond in the form of a question. Which is to say, in short, that we love Jeopardy! here at Tablet.

Last October, Trebek rapped Drake’s “Jumpman,” which was horrible but so true and pure. Trebek clearly has a lost career in emceeing bar and bat mitzvahs. And on Monday night, viewers were given a gift when Trebek read aloud the entire “Let’s Rap, Kids” category, which included lyrics from Drake again, as well as Lil Wayne, Desiigner, Kanye West, and Kendrick Lamar. Enjoy.
